   Re: [xml-dev] Word 2003 custom schema limitations

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Jeff,

Yes, there is a lot of recursion (in sections, lists, etc.).   I am just 
surprised that no one has run into this before.  Maybe no one is using 
Word to edit XML using custom schemas.

Possibly some content model is recursive (e.g. block elements in HTML).
